  1. In progress 1/48th North American P-51H Mustang by Modelsvit - release in 2nd half 2019. At last something else than the usual D model. This Mustang type was once upon a time the backbone of the ANG units. KursadA if you read this thread... Source: https://www.facebook.com/modelsvit/posts/2319912991611072 V.P.
  2. Hi, Eduard have released several Brassin wheels for their P-51D. So far, I know of the following… *Diamond tread. *Block tread. *Oval tread. *Cross tread. *(Still to be released) Pointed cross tread. I know practically nothing about these treads. Does anyone know which was the most common? Is there a very rare one in there? Was there a type which was used only in the Pacific? Or only in Europe? Is there a post WW2 type in there? Is there type which disappeared right after WW2, so that it is unsuitable for a Korean war Mustang? Cheers, Stefan.
  3. Hi gents, I want to show you my progres on this great kit, cheers! Antonio
  4. I am planning to build a P-51D modeled after Stephen C Ananian's from the 505FS, 339FG, 8AF USAAF. His plane was named Baby Mine. I can't find any decals for that aircraft. Obviously there were thousands of P-51s built so I didn't expect to find any decals for it. Any suggestions on what to do? Is there a way to make them myself? I suppose it's better to just switch to a plane for which there are decals. Just curious if there are ways around this. Thanks!

  7. A variety of unlimited air racers, from the Bud lite Super Corsair, to the RB-51 "Red Baron" to the purpose built Tsunami are now or soon to be available in multiple scales thanks to Civilized Models. I've had the pleasure of meeting Gary of Civilized Models who opened for business earlier this year just a few weeks prior to the Unlimited Air Races in Reno, NV. He is literally a one man business trying to fill a badly under serviced segment of aircraft model building. Civilized models is providing air racing subjects in three scales, 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale with an impressive amount of accuracy as well as some other civilian aircraft such as Pitt Specials and BD-5s. He has a passion for air racing and is very knowledgeable on the specific aircraft that have raced over the years. For those of you who are familiar with many of the historical air racers are probably aware of the various modifications and and changes these aircraft have had through over the course of their respective histories. Civilized Models has gone to the effort to provide specific kits of these aircraft with the appropriate modifications and decal markings for a particular time period or event for that particular aircraft's history. I can say accuracy is foremost when it comes to the effort of creating these kits. These kits are resin cast with vac form clear parts and metal landing (and related) assemblies where appropriate. There is some clean up necessary from the casting process and generally parts fit together nicely. These kits however are not shake and bake like a Tamiya kit. They do require a degree of model building skill and effort to make into a show quality model. Given this is a one man operation these comments are not intended to be critical of the product but to provide an honest evaluation and how it may relate to your model building skills and if you are up to the challenges that are inherent of most mixed media kits. Civilized Models can be found on Facebook. Gary posts with updates on a regular basis when new products are available or if he's offering a pre-sale discount opportunity. Also he's communicated in good faith when there's been a production delay on a kit and keeps his consumers up to date. Sometimes things do happen when casting resin so give the guy a break if you don't get your kit as soon as you would like. He will get it to you. Here is a link to Civilized models on Facebook, purchases can also be done through Ebay if you prefer- https://www.civilizedmodels.com/single-post/2017/12/13/Civilized-Models-Holiday-Sale-and-News

  9. Apart from the Eduard PE seat belts, this was built OOB. This was a build of "firsts" for me: first WWII plane, first propeller plane and first build completed in overall silver. It was painted with Polished Aluminium from AK Interactive's new Xtreme Metal range. It went down rather smoothly and had a great shine over a coat of gloss black. However, it did not adhere well to the kit's surface and several parts rubbed off. After spraying the appropriate areas back with the paint, I sealed the whole model with Mr Color gloss clear. This helped protect the paint thoroughly at the expense of the coating losing a bit of the metallic sheen. I elected to keep weathering to a minimum. What little you see was done with oils and pigments. Hope you enjoy the photos! Mark

  11. Here is my newest build, This is the fantastic Tamiya P-51 mustang using eagle-editions decals. I added a few extra items to the build such as the battery wiring behind the seat, barracuda cockpit decals and adding a little plumbing for the drop tanks. My mustang was painted using alclad dura-aluminum for the wings, aluminum for the airframe and control surfaces and dark aluminum in a few other spots, the black and white invasion strips were by Mr Paint and, the blue nose is from Mr Paint su-27 dark blue. I added some weathering to it using a flory wash, and then tamiya pastels for the exhause stain and gun ports, then the blue was given a semi-matt finsih. i hope u guys like my build here, questions and comments are welcome jeff
  12. I haven’t modeled since I was a young kid putting together Revell kits with Testors cement and finishing them in a couple hours. Even though I haven’t touched a kit since middle school, I have continued to follow model forums and build sites. Now, at the age of 33 and with the recent purchase of a house, I have the room to get back into it and try out all of the methods I have learned from forums like this. I decided to dive back in with one of the great 1/32 kits from Tamiya, their P-51D. I have also added some aftermarket kits, I am sure I will add more down the road but this is what I have so far…. Web Garden Seatbelts - #132071 BarracudaCast Cockpit Sidewalls - BR32012 BarracudaCast Instrument Panel - BR32013 BarracudaCast Cockpit Upgrade - BR32014 BarracudaCast Diamond Tread Tires - BR32029 Eduard Exterior - #32302 Eduard Engine - #32307 Eduard Interior- Early - #32712 I also plan on getting the “Mustang Cockpit Stencils and Placards” from Barracuda but they haven’t been in stock for months. Roy Sutherland, if you are out there, any chance these will be available soon? I haven’t made a 100% commitment to the final paint scheme I want to depict but I am leaning towards Fundekals and their “Daddy’s Girl”. A lot of my methods and references will come from Chuck Sawyer’s P-51 “Thunder Bird” featured on the January 2014 cover of “Fine Scale Modelers”. This man can do some work! He also is very descriptive in his techniques which have been very helpful, he always responds in detail. First off is the Merlin, after removing some seam lines and filling some gaps the engine went together beautifully. I plan to add a lot of extra plumbing all over the engine compartment and I started with some oil lines made out of copper wire that come out of the oil relief valve. I added a wire holder out of aluminum off a soda can. After finishing the plumbing that wouldn’t get in the way of paint I sprayed the entire engine with decanted Tamiya TS14 black. For the magneto’s, starter, and the coolant rails I painted them Alclad Aluminum. I painted every bolt and nut with Floquil Old Silver with the tip of a #11 X-acto blade. The ignition rails are made out of .030" styrene rod with copper wires as the ignition wires. It was my first time bending a styrene rod and after many failed attempts using such methods as warm water, the stove, and a hair dryer I tried my wife’s clothes steamer with beautiful results. That’s all for now. It is slow going since I am learning all these methods for the first time but I am having a lot fun with it so far! I look forward to everyone’s feedback. -Eric
